I also have extensive experience helping students prepare for high school and middle school entrance exams along with the SAT.

I looking forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

A large portion of my tutoring experience has been working with students taking Algebra I. I truly love helping students transition to this more challenging type of math. I place a great deal of emphasis on how skills build upon each other as well as the steps of problem solving. My primary goals are to build not only skill, but confidence as well.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Massachusetts certified teacher in grades 1-6. I have 20 years of teaching experience and have worked as a tutor for the past 11 years. I have kept my certification current through extensive coursework and attendance at workshops and conferences.

ISEE

I have worked to prepare students for both the middle and upper level ISEE for the past 4 years. My students consistently score well and go on to gain acceptance to various parochial and private schools in our area.

Prealgebra

A strong foundation in math is essential. Practice with both computation and problem solving makes students confident and successful. So often, I encounter students who know how to "follow the steps" but lack the understanding of why a problem is solved in a particular way or what the answer actually means. The use of the Common Core standards asks students to see the meaning behind the math--I can help give them that understanding.

PSAT

I have tutored students preparing for the SAT/PSAT for the past 5 years. I have worked extensively to become fluent in my understanding of the updated versions of these tests that began last spring. My previous students have improved their overall scores by 100-300 points.

Reading

As both a tutor and classroom teacher, I have worked extensively with students who need to improve and practice their reading comprehension skills. I employ a number of strategies based on a student's specific learning style and strengths. As a passionate reader myself, I love discussing books and enjoy seeing a student's confidence in and enjoyment of reading grow!

SAT Math

I have been tutoring students in preparation for the SAT exam for the past 4 years. All of my students raised their overall score by 100-300 points. I am familiar with all parts of the exam and can offer strategies and review for each.

Social Studies

I have worked as a classroom teacher at the elementary level, and as a gifted education teacher at the middle school level. In both positions, I was responsible for planning and implementing social studies lessons and units for students of all abilities. As a tutor, I have worked on history/social studies with students in grades 4-12.

SSAT

I have worked with students to prepare for the SSAT for the past six years. My students go on to perform well on the test and are accepted to a wide range of private and parochial secondary schools in the area, including Thayer Academy, Boston College High School, Notre Dame Academy and Milton Academy.

Study Skills

I have worked as a private tutor for 11 years and have assisted many students with their study skills. I use graphic organizers, various note taking methods and an understanding of learning styles. I recently attended a workshop on executive function which provided me with additional strategies.
